Well ok I didn't expect much for my money and from the trip advisor reviews I went knowing this place would not be great but it was central and easy to get to the rugby.
I booked through late rooms and it said that my card details had been taken for the reservation only and I would pay upon arrival and that I could cancel up to 2pm on the day of arrival if needed to, but when I got there they had already take the first night from my credit card!! I certainly was NOT amused. But I though well I am staying so whatever. Checked in and got the keys from the Bravehart.
Popped across the road to the the Regis Guest house, the best thing was the fact we were on the top floor with no other room so it was quiet.
But, the room was soooooo small with hardly any room to move for two people n there was close to hardly any room if at all to move in the bathroom. The shower was clean. The floor boards were so creaky everytime we move we made a noise! Even when we moved around to get comfy on the bed the floor boards creaked which was so weird. The tv made a very odd noise when it was turned on too!
The guest in the room below was smoking and we could smell it which was disgusting and no one we could tell because it is an unstaffed guest house with no phone line to the main hotel! The main door to the guest house had been left open on more than one occasion by other guests which allowed anyone from the street to walk in which was dangerous in my opinion cos the house was unstaffed. We even noticed that a few of the room had very obvious signs of break in before! Not exactly safe! Don't leave your valuables!
The breakfast was a bit ridiculous, fish cakes for a vegetarian breakfast, really?!! I had to ask for fried egg instead which didn't really fill me up with beans n mushrooms on the side!
When I told the owner about the smoker in the room below and the main door left wide open he didn't care, all I got was maybe you should have put a note under the door to tell them to stop smoking! Really?!? In general the guy manning the desk and the owner were really creepy!
There are loads of B&B's on this road, Gilmore place just do a google search and stay at another one!
I know you shouldn't expect much for a little random B&B but this was odd, the only positive was the comfy pillows, although I did take my own pillow covers and so glad I did cos it was grotty!!!
The place needed some serious love, the bedding was so faded that it really needed replaced, the shower had a random botch job to fix up the roof, the tiles were not grouted, the toilet still had labels on which were really old and just needed removing, the room probably had a re-dec more than 10 years ago n when painted the room the curtains had been painted around and so the walls were still black behind the curtains!
Even the other guests were grotty and weird!
